The Belfast Region at MIPIM 2023

This is an exciting time for the Belfast Region.

We are at the start of a decade of opportunity, underpinned by the transformative £1 billion Belfast Region City Deal programme of investment, delivering innovation and jobs for a new economic era across the Belfast Region. Transforming our city and city region into a healthy, low- carbon, climate resilient economy.

Belfast and the city region are now internationally recognised as being alive with entrepreneurial spirit, ambition, and optimism. We have a strong track record in attracting global occupiers and investors in real estate. We also have strong fundamentals in place, as evidenced by our recent real estate market performance.

We are further strengthening our ecosystem through investment in creating a Belfast Smart District, Belfast Innovation District and regional innovation hubs and testbeds, to provide the right environment to accelerate digital innovation, moving us from globally relevant to truly world leading.

With our unique location, investors are increasingly drawn to the city and wider region as a gateway between the UK and EU.

All of this, coupled with our burgeoning talent and internationally recognised universities, is pushing the region towards exponential growth. The new Ulster University campus in the heart of Belfast city centre and significant investment in purpose-built student accommodation has brought a new sense of vitality into the city, further fuelling demand for residential development.

There has never been a better time to consider investing in the region and its capital city, Belfast.
